===== Why is every second release missing ? ===== #version_numbers
Releases have an even third version number. Like 0.5.6 or 1.0.4.
During development the next higher odd number is used. E.g. 0.5.7 or 1.0.5.
The content of release tarballs does not get changed without changing
their name. The development tarballs of xorriso and cdrskin may change
their content without notice.
